Classic Peach Cobbler

My Nana Jeanie and Papa lived in Atlanta for many years before they moved to Florida. While they were there my Nana learned how to make the most incredible peach cobbler with those gorgeous Georgia peaches. I wasn’t around yet when they lived there, but she still made it every time we visited them in Florida. I lived for it, let me tell you. So when I saw gorgeous peaches at my farmer’s market this week, I decided to try to make my best approximation of her classic peach cobbler. It was simple, which really let the ingredients shine.

First, I worked on the filling for the classic peach cobbler. I just stirred my sliced peaches with lots of brown sugar, cinnamon, a little bourbon and some corn starch to thicken it. It looked gorgeous already! They baked for 10 minutes on their own.
Then it was time for me to work on the amazing topping. The topping is the best part of any cobbler after all! I used my pastry blender to cut butter into my mixture of flour, sugar and baking powder. It became moist and pebbly just like I wanted.
Then I stirred that mixture into a little boiling water. It made it become a pasty, soft dough almost like choux dough. It smelled so good because cooking it like that really brought out the flavor.
I crumbled that glorious mixture on top of the peaches in a layer. Then I sprinkled lots of extra cinnamon and sugar to finish assembling the classic peach cobbler. It baked for 30 minutes to really meld together and make the topping super crisp.

When it came out, I let the classic peach cobbler cool and set for just a couple of minutes. Then I served it with a big scoop of ice cream on top. Oh my goodness, this took me right back to my Nana Jeanie’s house during my childhood summers. The peaches were so juicy and sweet. That topping sent it over the top though. Hope you all love this classic too, it is really perfect for summer. xoxo

  • 5 whole peaches pitted and thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon bourbon
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons corn starch
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons butter cubed
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ice cream for topping
  1. First, prepare the peaches. Preheat the oven to 425. Combine the sliced peaches, sugar, cinnamon, bourbon, and corn starch in a large bowl and stir it all together well to make sure the peaches are coated completely. Transfer the mixture to an 8 x 8 baking dish and bake the peaches for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, work on the topping. Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and butter in a bowl. Use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the rest of the mixture until it is moist and crumbly.
  2. Heat the water in a small sauce pan and let it come to a gentle boil over medium heat. Stir in the rest of the topping mixture until it makes a pasty dough and take it off of the heat. Evenly crumble the topping over the peaches. Then stir the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl and sprinkle that evenly on the very top. Bake the cobbler for about 30 minutes, until the top is crispy. Let it cool and set for a couple of minutes, then serve warm with ice cream!
